Its Pyjama Day today!
Why not wear your pyjamas to nursery and bring a packet for our Christmas Hampers!
On Friday the 13th November we came to nursery dressed as our favourite superhero or princess to show support for Children in Need.
At nursery we coloured and cut out our own Pudsey, we decorated our own spotty biscuits to have as snack and enjoyed watching Pudsey on the interactive white board!
Mrs Dowsland made scones and asked staff and Portakabin workmen for donations in return.
We all had great fun and thanks to the generosity of the parents we manage to raise the fantastic sum of;
We have registered with Easy Fundraising to try and raised some funds for our outdoor areas once our extension is complete. All you need to do is go to the following link and start shopping. Once you have finished shopping the retailer will make a donation to us at no extra cost to you!
We thank you for your continued support of the Family Centre and would appreciate if you could share this link amongst family and friends.
After risk assessing for Woodland Explorers the decision has been made to cancel this all week due to the unpredictable weather. We will continue to assess this on a daily basis, please bring your child dressed accordingly for their outdoor sessions. Thank you.
On Friday 30th October we had our Halloween Parties. The children and staff all came to the centre in their fabulous costumes.
The children enjoyed some Halloween treats. We had a special Halloween BookBug session where we read the story “Is That You Wolf?” and sang some Halloween songs. The children even dooked for apples!
Great fun was had by all.

We have now started our outdoor learning experiences (Woodland Explorers). Please look under our “Pupils” tab to access the pictures that have been taken whilst your child enjoys their time outdoors.
Tomorrow (Friday, 30th October 2015) is the last day to put your child’s name down for home access to EducationCity. This costs £2.25 for the year and is a worthwhile asset to your child’s learning. At present we do not have enough names to allow us to go ahead with this, we need at least 30 parents to sign up for this. Please see Denise in the office for more information.
Please note that as of tomorrow, Thursday, 22nd October 2015 we will return to accessing the family centre via Neilston Primary School playground.
We appreciate that this isnt ideal but we thank you for your continuing support meantime.
